Window Control Switch

I need to replace my master window switch and have found some that match the part number. However towards the bottom of the sticker mine lists HW 02 SW 08. All of the ones that I have been able to find have the same part number but show HW 02 SW 09. The picture has an arrow pointing to the SW number I am referring to.

Do the HW & SW numbers need to match too, or do I only need to match the part number?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You should be fine using a module with a higher SW version. They would have made the software backward compatible.
